FENIX has outstanding aesthetic and performance characteristics; machining it is easy and it is very simple to handle. It can be used in different applications and contexts. It is adapted to both vertical and horizontal applications. It has a slight directionality, only visible in certain lighting conditions which, as a precaution, are indicated on the packaging.
FENIX is a highly versatile material: it can be combined, in addition to generic support materials, e.g. veneered or used with plywood, as well as other media, with materials such as glass, MDF and “superlight” materials.
The FENIX Thin version can be used for making edges using the same design with a thickness of 1.2 mm or using ABS/PP edges developed in partnership with Rehau, Döllken and Ostermann. Polyurethane glue is required for FENIX 1.2 edges. ABS or polymer edges can be glued with hot melt adhesives, by using new laser systems or with air systems.
FENIX Thin is coated on the medium and consequently does not require special equipment for working which is comparable to HPL laminate.
The following cutting tools can be used: panel saws with blades with tungsten carbide inserts; circular saws, circular saw benches. The milling tools include: various portable milling cutters, fixed milling equipment (milling machines or pantographs). Polishing equipment: files, sand paper. Drilling tools: hand tools, pillar tools or a workstation that can both mill and drill (twist bits, hole saws).For the FENIX Solid version we recommend using tools fitted with diamond tips.
FENIX is a semi-finished product, consequently the fabricator’s instructions should be followed, according to the different applications and variety of contexts.
